I learned a lot as a graduate student, but the culture at this university is terrible for your mental health. Also, during my short time here (2-3 years), the department cut back on minimum funding support for graduate students, at a time when the cost of living in Montreal is rapidly increasing.

Overall difficult to deal with the red-tape. That being said, there were plenty of resources to help you navigate the position. It can get tiring to deal with the red-tape and procedures.

Great experience and exposure for prospective graduate students. The university is located at the center of downtown Montreal and offers anything a graduate student could hope for. Work-life balance may suffer depending on the PI you choose to work with.
Pros
Access to bright minds, cutting edge technology, and exciting research opportunities.
Cons
Will primarily depend on your PI.

McGill University was the best place I ever worked at.Just some PROs:Management that realize your professional capabilities and does not try to micro manage your every step, but rather provides background support and assistance.Team members, even in other teams, that answer your questions within acceptable delay. Overall team work is aimed at results and not at finding the scapegoats.If you are employee, lots of paid days off.Work schedule that takes your family into account.
Pros
Paid summer Fridays, employer RSP participation, relaxed environment
Cons
Lower salaries

Nous avons beaucoup travaillé auprès d'enseignantes autochtones Cri. Elles nous ont beaucoup apporté et ont ouvert nos yeux. Leur appréciation de notre formation a dépassée nos attentes.

Great place to work, academic environment but difficult to get in. Fair place of work, with professors and other academic people. Depending on the jo, it can be a challenging or slow pace place of work.

Loved volunteering there! Everyone was very helpful and nice. It was a very fast paced environnement though as expected with any hospital. Hardest part was for sure seeing some very sad and frightening situations.

A day in McGill start from doing an experiment. We made plans and took time to read literature. Usually, in the afternoon, we analysed the data and wrote report.

For example, working at the library of McGill University is not stressful and enjoyable due to the very compassionate supervisors. Some of the tasks require shelving books - placing them in their appropriate place, searching for requested books and take part in special missions.

I was a full-time student for two years. There are many opportunities to learn and improve in both area Knowledge and culture. Learning from professors who the most are knowledgeable and aware prof. Unwithstanding studying at McGill would be a sort of fast-paced education, but that would be one of the unforgettable experience in life. Working together, Learning more, following up hard and enjoying deep at the time I studied at McGill that push forward me with the supportive and effective methods. Also, ‌studying at this university motivates us to be able to work as an effective and innovative member of a group.

Professor is wonderful. Job not guaranteed after end of tenure, renewal of contact dependent on research fund availability. No teaching activities, just research .
